One of the long awaited for features that finally came to Windows Phone was the ability to stream the audio from a video to a Bluetooth speaker and we are happy to see that the feature is also in Windows Phone 8. When connecting your Bluetooth speaker such as a Jawbone Jambox, or the Plantronics Backbeat Go, both the Audio from videos on your phone and Audio from online videos will stream to your connected Bluetooth speaker.

    To tout this as a feature is criminal. It should have been there in the first place. Every other phone has been doing this since the begining of time.

      Not really touting it as a feature but more of a reassurance. Even though we all feel sometimes that certain features are a must and should be there I understand sometimes that something has to be cut to make release dates because I do it in my day job. So I was happy to see that it was still there and wrote this post for anyone else wondering.

    how is the sound quality over bluetooth? On wp7 devices, the sound was really bad compared to 3.5 mm output, and I used the same headset (Sony Ericsson mw600, a really nice piece of tech) that works really well with android and ios.

      So far it has been great for me. Used it at the beach and at birthday parties without issue!

    Does it work in a GM car with Bluetooth? Or does the car need to have special bluetooth streaming capability?
